Description

Conway's Game of Life is a cellular automation that can create a thriving and complex cellular ecosystem based on four simple rules on a square grid. Any live cell with fewer than two live neighbours dies. Any live cell with two or three live neighbours lives on to the next generation. Any live cell with more than three live neighbors dies. Any dead cell with exactly three live neighbours becomes a live cell.

Now you can have this cellular automation on your iPad!

Simply open the application and a randomly generated ecosystem springs to life! You can pause, play, step one generation, and clear the ecosystem. At any point in the simulation, you can click or drag to create new, living cells. It is also possible to change the speed of the simulation, as well as the size of the grid. You can also save and print an image of the current pattern.

Upcoming releases:

- Early defaults
- Ability to save the state.
- More skills.
